WATCH OUT Bogus Scam callers stating that there are claims that need to be settled.....These Thieves are preying on people who do not owe anything...How can the phone companies be warned or block the unknown numbers???? On the call waiting the nunber only comes up as "0" and unknown..
Called me last couple weeks leaving "reference number TC5042" as well as for Mike below (who I don't know). Number they leave message is to call back this number, 1-866-329-3750. How do I stop them from calling? Is there something our phone company (AT&T) can do when no number racks up? My phone has no application or way to block all unknown calls or specific numbers. They need to do more and catch these people.

These scumbags just called me at 8:33pm EST.
Interesting develpment as they actually called FROM this number but didn't leave a message. And since they called at 12:25pm, that certainly would have given me enough time to call by "5:02pm EST". Ha Ha. Losers.
Yay. They finally called back. Scammers
Funny, they haven't called back or sent any notification by mail.
Correction-it should read FDCPA
I have also found from reading others complaints that this alleged company refuses to validate any alleged debt when asked which they are required to do in writing within 5 days of contact as per the FSCPA. But, being bogus, that would be mail fraud now wouldn't it.
From what I've been able to find, it is a SCAM posing as a collection agency. So far I have read 5 people with the same "reference number" of TC5042.
